Cross-domain policy file specification | Adobe Developer Connect Cross-domain policy file specification | Adobe Developer Connect A cross-domain policy file is an XML document that grants a web client—such as Adobe Flash Player, Adobe Reader, etc.—permission to handle data across multiple domains. When a client hosts content from a particular source domain and that content makes requests directed towards a domain other than its own, the remote domain would need to host a cross-domain policy file that grants access to the source domain, allowing the client to continue with the transaction. Policy files grant read access to data, permit a client to include custom headers in cross-domain requests, and are also used with sockets to grant permissions for socket-based connections. For complete details, download the cross-domain policy file specification below. The specification is a reference for the structure and use of cross-domain policy files.
The ExternalInterface class is an application programming interface that enables straightforward communication between ActionScript and the SWF container– for example, an HTML page with JavaScript or a desktop application that uses Flash Player to display a SWF file. Using the ExternalInterface class, you can call an ActionScript function in the Flash runtime, using JavaScript in the HTML page. The ActionScript function can return a value, and JavaScript receives it immediately as the return value of the call. This functionality replaces the fscommand() method. Use the ExternalInterface class in the following combinations of browser and operating system: Flash Player for Linux version 9.0.31.0 and later supports the ExternalInterface class in the following browsers: ExternalInterface - ActionScript 3.0 Language and Components Ref ExternalInterface - ActionScript 3.0 Language and Components Ref

How do I fix this cross-domain ActionScript 3 error? - Stack Ove I'm going to be as specific and verbose as possible and include some of the code I'm using. I already did a search and found this question, which seems similar; however the author there was using ActionScript 2 instead of 3, and I couldn't seem to apply any of the answers given to my own situation effectively. I am trying to emulate (in a limited way) the behavior of JavaScript's XMLHttpRequest object through Flash/ActionScript 3, in order to overcome the same-domain limitation. But I'm discovering that ActionScript has its own limitations in that regard. How do I fix this cross-domain ActionScript 3 error? - Stack Ove
